    Thanks for the review Robert.

    This is an advanced users issue however. The difference between the images you provided is:

    1) Original image has ICC color profile info and the EXIF data
    2) Watermarked image has no ICC and no EXIF

    We’ll try to do something with it.

    Thanks to looking into my issue.

    My Question would be why are you striping that information out wouldn’t the photographer who wants to protect their image via a watermark care the most about image quality? Removing the ICC color profile and to a lesser extent EXIF will obviously degrade the image.

    Do you think we are doing this intentionally?

    We’re not. It’s just being stripped while image regeneration and we just have to find solution to it (and we will).

    Removing ICC profile is not changing the quality of the image. ICC is responsible for color interpretation, it does not hold or remove any image data.

    I know the importance of this for professional photographers, and we’ll definitely provide a fix.

    Sorry for the indignation… 

    Thank you for looking into my issue.

    Has there been any progress on this issue? Image quality is seriously degraded after adding a watermark, which more or less defeats the purpose of using your plugin… Just because we want our images protected does not mean that we want them to display poorly to clients.
